* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]'', this shows up with Priscilla and her long lost brother Raymond, [[ThatManIsDead now known as]] Raven. The ambiguous context of their support conversation makes it unclear whether she is just observing their ChildhoodMarriagePromise or actually expecting Raven to deliver on it. Considering [[BrotherSisterIncest/FireEmblem the franchise]], it's probably the latter.

* In Creator/MaryRenault's first AlexanderTheGreat book, ''Literature/FireFromHeaven'', the four-year-old Alexander proposes to his mother. She treats it as just something very young kids say. What follows when dad Philip comes in, drunk and brutal, is [[FreudWasRight an Oedipal scene]] that is so painful for Alexander he represses the memory until he's much older.

* Akiha in {{Tsukihime}} would very much like to marry her brother, [[spoiler:the adopted one. In her own route, he reciprocates her feelings, while the blood-related one seems to very much want to marry her, or at least has plenty of subtext to that effect. Unfortunately he's some kind of killer demon vampire thing, and also a complete lunatic, and she makes it very clear that she does ''not'' return his feelings.]]

** Deconstructed a bit in ''Persona 4 Arena'', where Yu's relationship with Nanako is repeatedly used as a BerserkButton; half the time he's provoked into a fight it's by hearing someone mock how close the two are, with implications that he's hearing truly disgusting things sometimes.

* A female comedian (whose name I do not recall) said that her young son told her "Mommy, when I grow up I want to marry a girl just like you." She said she felt so good until, out of the corner of her eye) she saw her husband making the NO, NO, NO wave off gesture. Family marriage by proxy, I guess, but still.

* In ''Literature/TheBelgariad'''s first book, the very-young Garion suggests that his adoptive mother marry Durnik (an adult friend of hers); then, when she refuses, offers himself. She laughs at the idea, and there's no mention of physical or emotional attraction on any side- Garion just believes that women are ''supposed'' to be married (he lives in a medieval society), so naturally Pol must resent being single.
-->''"Don't worry, Aunt Pol," he said, wanting to put her mind at ease.''
